Antiques and homeware shops in Suffolk
There’s nothing like discovering a one-off piece of furniture or decorative piece for your home or garden! Luckily, there are plenty of Aladdin’s caves within easy reach of Woodfarm Barns and Barges.
We like to be unique in everything that we do, from our unbeatable luxury dog-friendly holiday cottages with relaxing hot tubs, to our historic Dutch barges on the Suffolk riverways. We even love distinctive furniture and homeware – as you might have seen if you’ve ever stayed in Woodfarm House!
If you have a similar taste for unique finds, you’ll be right at home in the beautiful county of Suffolk. What we lack in Ikea stores, we make up for in independent antique parlours and quirky homeware shops. You can find one in almost any town – especially near our barns and barges.
Here are just a few of our favourite antiques and homeware shops located nearby:
Clara Bowe, Henley
This adorable shop in Henley, just outside Ipswich, sells everything from fine china to vintage and nearly-new clothing. Their one-off furniture pieces span the 20th century, and some have even undergone restoration for a kitsch, upcycled look. The staff at Clara Bowe are highly meticulous when it comes to selecting their wares, making sure that customers are receiving items which are pre-loved, but never low quality.

Swan House & Garden, Debenham
Visit this well-appointed Debenham-based shop for a highly curated selection of goods sourced from across the world. Here, you’re just as likely to stumble across a Persian rug (hopefully not literally) as you are a white leather sofa from the 1970s. Plus, for particularly discerning clientele, an interior design service is available.

House & Garden, Snape Maltings
You’re in for a treat if you’re staying on board our Onderneming barge, as it’s moored right next to Snape Maltings. Here, a plethora of stunning furniture and home decor options await you at House & Garden, which is housed inside a renovated maltings building. The capacious shop features British-made goods, from upholstery to lighting, as well as a large selection of plants.
